Great Makeover for my daughter! – My brother and sister-in-law gave my 13 year old daughter a new look for her Christmas present. Part of that was a cut and styling of the long thick curly hair that she never wanted cut. It was hard to drag her in for a trim. She had an appointment with Leah who talked with her first and asked her what she wanted and what she found difficult about keeping her hair looking good. Anna actually opened up and explained about the knots at the nape of her neck and the frizz and that she wanted it to look sleek, long and shiny! Leah listened carefully and made some suggestions they agreed on trimming and shaping. Leah explained to Anna exactly what she was doing as she was doing it and how she could do this herself. My daughter was so pleased with the way she looked that she wished that it wasn't Christmas vacation and that the kids at school could see her. The best part of this is Anna can do it herself! She looks great!!!
Where's Heather? – Does anyone know where Heather went after leaving Mario Russo? She used to do my highlights and she was the best! Please respond if you know anything.
Where's Lori? – So Lori O'Brien has left Mario Russo. There are still other great stylists there, but does anyone know where she went??? They won't say.
worst haircut at any price – Walked in looking somewhat sophisticated left looking like someone from the cast of The Golden Girls. ....in spite of pictures and discussion of what I wanted. It will take a year to undo the damage.
Amanda Johnson - Best Colorist in Boston!!!!! – I've been going to Amanda for years now and will certainly be a lifelong client. Amanda has worked wonders on my hair, making me look great as both a blond and a brunette - which is not easy to do. Over the years she has flawlessly transitioned my hair back and forth at my every whim. She knows how to give her clients exactly what they want and can make the color subtle, natural, or a drastic change if you please. She is sweet and intelligent and clearly knows her stuff. Amanda also recommends the best product for your hair, without trying to oversell you. I've sent numerous friends to Amanda that all still continue to see her. I honestly can rave about her enough and recommend her services to anyone out there who wants a fabulous color!
Hip Salon with friendly and attentive staff – While I would love to have my hair done by Mario himself, my pockets do not reach so deep. I am not very good at scheduling ahead of time and usually just call to see if anyone is available on the day I feel desperate for a good cut. I have no fear doing this becuase everyone is so talented at Mario Russo and they always listen to what I want.
Lori O'Brien and Amanda Johnson – Last May, after having a long conversation with Lori, I decided to get extensions to make my hair longer and fuller. Lori matched the color so perfectly and blended the hair so well, no one could tell I had extensions in! And now, almost one year later, I am still getting them done! She does an amazing job, each time we change it up, it gets better and better! It's more than worth the trip from Florida!! I love Lori and will never let anyone else other than her and Amanda touch my hair!!! Amanda Johnson takes care of my color and she is a god send! The color always come out so beautiful and shiny. Amanda makes the best recommendations for color and also for hair care products. Since I started using the Kerastace she recommneded, my hair has transformed to beautiful silky shiny hair!! I will never go anywhere else!
best haircolor in boston – I have struggled for many years trying to find the right person to make my dark brown hair have natural blonde highlights. I finally found the right person in Heather. My hair looks amazing. The color is very natural but blonde enough. There is no brassiness or orangy tones at all. She is definitely the BEST. I also had my haircut with Roseanna and it looks great. Long layers yet can still pull back in a ponytail if you want to. I never write reviews but I really felt compelled too. it is worth every penny!!!! Will never go anywhere else. They are also very nice.
Lori O'Brien to the Thinning Hair Rescue! – Yes, it is a dirty little secret that women don't share; not all of us keep a full mane of hair into our 40s. There is hope and it is named Lori O'Brien of Mario Russo! Lori is an expert in hair extensions, using only the best product available --Great Lengths. Not only does the hair blend easily with my own, it is easy to treat and doesn't damage what little hair I have left. Lori works with an amazing colorist to match colors (Heather at MR) and then gives the hair an expert cut. The extensions last four months and I can do everything with them in! I feel ten years younger and more confident. Lori is gentle (the process takes several hours) and is a wonderful person to boot. Surprisingly, the atmosphere at this Newbury Street salon is very relaxed and accommodating. Don't live with thinning hair; go see Lori as soon as you can!!!!!!
Sal is the best! – After relocating from NYC last year, I wasn't sure that Boston salons would be up to par. Sal at Salon Mario Russo totally proved me wrong--best haircut I've ever had and soo handsome to boot. He is a wizard with my difficult curly hair and Amanda is great for natural-looking glossy highlights. Cozy, intimate salon, great conversation and most of all a talented staff.
